Docker Alpine PHP
A very small Docker image to bootstrap your PHP development.
Why this image?
Of course, there are official PHP images but the size looks a little big for my development machine, and I also prefer some customization on my builds.
In addition, I sometimes want to quickly run a small PHP script, so I don't really need that big-in-size official images.
The size-differences illustrated below:
REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE petehouston/docker-alpine-php 5.5 76642fdcb40d 5 hours ago 136.4 MB petehouston/docker-alpine-php 5.6 d4a16ab8659b 6 hours ago 137.2 MB petehouston/docker-alpine-php 7.0 5a2b3687d124 9 hours ago 138.5 MB php 7.0-alpine 562f31e64296 12 days ago 382.9 MB php 5.6-alpine 7bc0403e7fa9 12 days ago 334.7 MB php 5.5-alpine 76323652d59f 12 days ago 330.8 MB
As you can see, the difference is around 2.5-3 times.
Following PHP versions are set as default
If you want to change version, just update this line in
ENV PHP_VERSION Your_Desired_Version
How to use?
Just pull it to your local machine,
$ docker pull petehouston/docker-alpine-php
The repo uses
make to execute the command, so you can either use
make to build or manually issue the commands.
The build commands are listed below:
make php-5.5: to build image for PHP 5.5.
make php-5.6: to build image for PHP 5.6.
make php-7.0: to build image for PHP 7.0.
make build: to build images for all PHP versions.
make test: to execute image tests.
make: to execute
make clean: to remove all images.
The test suite is very simple and put in a single test script tests/index.sh.
